Here is another new charcoal drawing inspired by an old masters painting “Innocence Prefers Love to Wealth” by Pierre-Paul Prud’hon
(April 4, 1758 – February 16, 1823) was a French Romantic painter best known for his allegorical paintings and portraits.
I have retitled my drawing to simply “Innocence.”
The original title raises issues about how we see love and wealth……. particularly in today’s world where many people are focused on money.
What do you think….?
Below is a picture of the original painting.

Love anytime over wealth. Wealth is over rated in this society. Witness the US elections. Thanks for another inspirational image. RTLE
I think we will agree on Love. It is the essence of who we are and what we do. Thanks Silvia
Always love! Not cosmetic love but profound love.
Thanks for making a distinction between Cosmetic Love and Profound Love. One is superficial or just on the surface while the other is deep and meaningful. Best wishes, Robert
Love is the essence of who we are and how we live our lives in this surreal time that we call Life. If we should need confirmation above and beyond our inner understanding then all we need to do is read the writings and thoughts of all of the spiritual masters…
……and John Lennon……….”All We Need Is Love”………..Thanks again John
